Psalm 6

Yahweh, Rescue My Soul

For the choir director. With stringed instruments. According to the Sheminith. A Psalm of David.

O Yahweh, do not reprove me in Your anger,
Nor discipline me in Your wrath.
Be gracious to me, O Yahweh, for I am pining away;
Heal me, O Yahweh, for my bones are dismayed.
And my soul is greatly dismayed;
But You, O Yahweh—how long?

Return, O Yahweh, rescue my soul;
Save me because of Your lovingkindness.
For there is no remembrance of You in death;
In Sheol who will give You thanks?

I am weary with my sighing;
Every night I make my bed swim,
I flood my couch with my tears.
My eye has wasted away with grief;
It has become old because of all my adversaries.

Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity,
For Yahweh has heard the sound of my weeping.
Yahweh has heard my supplication,
Yahweh receives my prayer.
All my enemies will be ashamed and greatly dismayed;
They shall turn back, they will suddenly be ashamed.
